Question Help me learn more about my grandfather.

Hey bros and girls,
I hate posting non Airsoft stuff on the forums, but I really want to learn about this.
So I was studying, and my mom came to my room with a key chain like gold colorful thing, she said she found it looking through my grandfather who passed early this year's things. It has a gold skull, red jewel eyes with the words "knights of pythias" written above and a crafted knight helmet above. I am not sure what it is or refers to. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Drew

The Knights of Pythias were a secretive fraternal order. They started in the Massachusetts area if I am not mistaken and came up around the later 1800s. It is important to note that while they can be referred to being Masonic, they are technically independent, but it was not uncommon to find people who were both Masons and Knights of Pythias. Some of the general themes are similar, but just how much I do not know. You can research them online, but take your findings with a grain of salt. Secret societies do not discuss what happens behind closed doors to the general public, otherwise they wouldn't be "secret societies." Like all such fraternal orders, there are many conspiracy theories surrounding them, and you will have to make your own decisions on what you believe as truth and libel.

I can tell you that he got it in with your grandmother....

In all seriousness, it sounds like your granddad was in the Knights of Pythias or had a relative that was in. Searched some of the conspiracy theories, pretty interesting reads.
